Road Inventory, Truck Routes on Starke Commissioners Agenda

starke-county-courthouseThe Starke County Commissioners are set to certify the county road inventory when they meet this evening. It determines how much money the county gets from the state for road maintenance and repairs. Discussion of industrial park truck routes is also on tonight’s agenda. Both North Judson and Knox recently adopted routes to keep through traffic to and from their industrial parks and other factories off residential streets. Starke County Economic Development Foundation Executive Director Charlie Weaver has worked with both communities to have the routes placed on the proprietary GPS systems over-the-road truck drivers use. The commissioners will also discuss a bridge inspection document this evening.

In other business, Starke County Clerk Vicki Cooley will discuss election locations, Sheriff Bill Dulin is on the agenda with a personnel question and IT Director Brian Pinson will talk to the commissioners about a proposed county IT policy. The commissioners will also consider the appointment of Ron Simoni to the Property Tax Assessment Board of Appeals, or PTABOA.

Their meeting starts at 6 p.m. in the meeting room at the annex building.
